Portrait of a Day at Wimbledon – Ground staff

.

Yesterday I gave you the umpire and today it’s the turn of the ground staff and something that is all too familiar at Wimbledon…

.

Oh No!!  please don’t tell me that…

.

.

Afraid so! here comes the rain but she’s not bothered she’s got a glass of Pimm’s and it’s no good you putting your hand out Mrs it hasn’t stopped ! 

Get ready for the covers…

.

.

…here they come

.

.

so the covers are on but…

.

….not for long. 10 minutes later the ground staff put them away again but it ain’t that easy!

.

.

OOOPs there she goes…

How un-chivalrous of him to laugh !

.

The ground staff work very hard and always get a well deserved round of applause when the covers go on and when they come back off.

.

Now what will I feature tomorrow?  I hope you’ll come back to find out.

  1. Great images again! I love the portrait (as opposed to landscape) one! The woman in the front row is determined to enjoy her mocha-chocca-whatever, whether it’s raining or not! 🙂 Now we just want to see the tennis players! 🙂

  2. These ARE fun Helen…FAR more fun than Tennis…..
    🙂
    If you can avoid the actual tennis for the whole of this series I will be eternally grateful…..

    NEW BALLS !…( always wanted to shout that).
